open access, scholarly communication, acquisitions, article processing charges
Standard academic publishers are readily promoting and offering hybrid open access publishing to authors. In Europe and the United Kingdom, librarians are busy tracking the scholarship produced by their institutions and developing formula to obtain what is described as the total cost of publication at their given institutions. Given the lack of significant mandates for open access in North America, most academic librarians involved with collections and acquisitions work have remained focused on cost per use as opposed to the total cost of publication. Let's explore the transition from cost per use to total cost of publication and the mechanisms needed for tracking and evaluating packages in the hybrid academic publishing environment.
